Two Reviews of Skin

Posted on 19th February 2016 in News

You can find two responses to my latest collection of poems, Skin (Longbarrow Press, 2015) in the on-line journal Sabotage and the Winter 2015/16 print edition of The North.  Ed Ferrari produced a ‘podcast’ review of my book back in August. His ten minute consideration of Skin can be found here.  I like the way an audio response allows the reviewer the space and time to read whole poems out and comment on them at length.  The second review was written by Pam Thompson for the latest edition of The North (no. 55).  Information about the contents of the latest North and how you can get hold of the magazine can be found here.  One little snippet from Pam’s consideration of my poems: ‘This substantial collection showcases Jones’s range and talent admirably. It reminded me of why I fell in love with poetry, and kept the faith.’
